SCORE: Moving towards schistosomiasis elimination
Jul 17, 2015

As a consortium tasked with operational research, SCORE is finding out what current and future NTD program managers need to do to make mass drug administration (MDA) for schistosomiasis a better intervention in terms of alternative approaches. SCORE is also working to evaluate and develop tools needed by national program managers for mapping and diagnostics.
